Neste has announced it has opened four new petrol stations in northern and central California providing greater accessibility to 100% renewable diesel.
The facilities are located near major commercial freight routes and are designed to accommodate commercial fleet vehicles.
The new cardlock locations are operated by Jeffries Brothers Petroleum and are located at Wasco, Buttonwillow and Shafter.
Each location will be supplied with Neste MY Renewable Diesel, a low-carbon fuel produced from 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials that cuts greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% compared to petroleum diesel.
The four new stations join existing Neste-branded sites in San Leandro, San Jose, Keyes and Ripon.
“Truck drivers are maintaining an important role in delivering packages, supplying hospitals and restocking grocery stores during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Carrie Song, vice president for renewable road transport in North America. “It is critical to keep these vehicles moving with less greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution as we look toward creating a healthier planet for our children, and to create the framework for a green recovery in a post-COVID world.”
Neste’s fuel has already played a major role in California’s low carbon fuel standard, replacing more than 1.6 billion gallons of fossil diesel. Additionally, many well-known car makers certify the use of renewable diesel in their engines, and the California Air Resources Board has a certified pathway for renewable diesel.
